Capitol Records Nashville’s Caylee Hammack follows the debut music video for “Family Tree” with a behind-the-scenes look at how its autobiographical lyrics were brought to life. With “one of the wildest life stories of any rising artist” (CMT), “Behind the Family Tree” shares an inside peek of personal tokens throughout each scene and reveals real-life family and friends who make special appearances. Following the release of the music video last week, Hammack’s new single introducing her “soulful vocals and descriptive lyrics” (Billboard) was the most added debut at Country radio by a female artist in over three years.
“I actually brought in a bunch of family and friends for my first video,” shared Hammack. “You’ll meet my mama who really is a Tupperware addict and my sister Mollie, the whole reason this song was written. She was sneaking out to smoke cigarettes, so I started writing about it. I don’t think I’d ever seen my dad’s legs before this video, but he loved being in it. He broke that lawn chair afterwards dancing in it! My friends, my sound-wizard producer Mikey, my dog and my grandma’s quilt that survived my house fire all reveal a little bit more about me. Welcome to our ‘family tree.’”
